6/17 - Save the Date! Annie Get Your Gun -- 7/1 ... The world’s most famous and amazing traveling wild west show is coming to Ojai ACT in July with the Tony Award winning musical version of “Annie Get Your Gun.” It’s coupled with a turbulent love story surrounding the true story of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, which was as popular as a rock concert would be today.
During a stop in Cincinnati, the world’s most famous marksman, Frank Butler, challenges anyone to a shooting match. A local hotel owner enters 15-year-old Annie Oakley and “Doin’ What Comes Natur’lly,” she beats him, earning an instant offer to join the show. The rest is, literally, history. But the love and rivalry between Frank and Annie is as wild and turbulent as the show itself, featuring cowboys, Indians...
6/17 - Ozomatli -- Saturday at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai ... Bursting onto the L.A. stage with their first eponymously titled album in June 1998, Ozomatli capitalized on being the talk of the live music scene, particularly their show stopping gigs. By 1999, they were touring with Carlos Santana and soon won the Grammy for “Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album” for 2001’s EMBRACE THE CHAOS.
They repeated history in 2004 by winning again in the same category for their album STREET SIGNS. In the band’s nearly twenty years together, they have toured internationally, collaborated with the Boston and New York Pops orchestras, and served as Cultural Ambassadors for the U.S. State Department. ...

4/29 - Save the Date! "Skylight" -- 5/6 ... “Skylight” is open in the Ojai ACT theater, casting a light on a disparate relationship of age, tastes, status, love, death and an undercurrent of politics. “I was stunned by the power and skill of the writing, the depth and complexity of the characterizations and the brilliance of the acting,” stated Director Steve Grumette, who saw it in L.A. in 1997 and never forgot it.
No wonder it won a Tony last year as Best Revival of a Play on Broadway, after an equally successful run across the pond in London, proving that it stands the test of time since it was written in 1995 by British Playwright Sir David Hare. Now in Ojai, it's showing off its “absolutely splendid” insights, a conclusion by the New York Times during its ...
3/4 - Tickets now on sale for ... "The Addams Family" musical comedy at OjaiACT ... 3/11-4/3 ... You’ve heard of “Meet the Parents,” now there’s even a more hilarious and offbeat play where you can “Meet the Addams Family” -- in person, to the sound of music, no less. It’s “The Addams Family” musical where cartoonist Charles Addams’ famed New Yorker panels come to life and limb starting March 11 through April 3 at Ojai ACT. Meet the parents, Gomez and Morticia, along with Uncle Fester, Grandma Addams, the kids Wednesday and Pugsley and manservant Lurch. It seems the teen-aged Wednesday has a boyfriend named Lucas whose ‘normal’ father and mother, Mal and Alice, want to meet the parents … and the fun begins with hilarious and discordant results.

1/21 - "... laugh yourself into a hernia ..." -- "Black Comedy" opens Friday 1/22 ... “Is it still possible to laugh yourself into a hernia watching ‘Black Comedy’?” That’s what USA Today said of a Broadway production of this play, and a new version is coming to the Ojai Art Center Theater on January 22nd for four weekends. “Black Comedy” was written by acclaimed playwright Peter Shaffer, who later wrote “Amadeus” and “Equus,” two plays that are classics on any theater lover’s list, and this one is equally worthy.
It’s a comedy that plays with our senses of light and dark, and one that starts with a brilliant conceit: when the stage is dark (for a brief time in the beginning) the actors react as if they can see normally, but the audience can’t see them. Then a ...

The music was written by Leslie Bricusse, whose well-known songs include James Bond themes and musicals such as “Willy Wonka,” “Stop the World ...” and “The Roar of the Greasepaint ... ” For “Dolittle...
